What a fantastic day. It was my son's 9th birthday and we had a family trip to Duxford Imperial War Museum near Cambridge to celebrate.
The highlight of the day was a flight in a De Havilland Dragon Rapide, my 6 year old boy came with us also but my wife stayed on the ground .
Although only a couple of circuits the airfield the memory will stay with us for a long long time I'm sure.
What an amazing plane, the sounds, smells and vibrations made for a completely involving experience, unlike the clinical modern planes we use almost like buses.
As you can see Nathan really gets in to the spirit of things!
The pilot and booking guy ensured that he had a special time and he was allowed 'up front' after the flight.
A unforgettable day!

After a lifetime of working with and around people addicted to all manner of substances, gambling and other behaviours, at 50 years of age I have finally succumbed to my own 'habit'.
So much so that if I'm not actually at the workbench or flying field, I'm glued to the screen of my iPad watching videos or scanning various threads of this forum.
The bug that is RC has seriously bitten me.
It is not helped by having two young sons that are plane crazy.
Do I fight it or just give in?
While I ponder I'm just off to chop some more balsa!
